HARARE – Zimbabwean president-elect Emmerson Mnangagwa says he has ordered the release of MDC’s Tendai Biti.
Mnangagwa said on social media that he intervened to ensure peace and adherence to the law.
Biti, a leading MDC-Alliance politician, was released on bail on Thursday evening.
Zimbabwean police accuse Biti of inciting political violence.
Equally important, however, is an adherence to the rule of law. I repeat – no one is above the law. Thus due to the serious nature of the allegations of incitement, due process will continue. (2/3)
